Bryan Thompson, runner-up on this season’s Motor City Masters and recent Out of the Tunnel Podcast guest is putting his winnings to work.

Last night, on the final episode, Thompson came in 2nd to the talented Camillo Pardo.   After the show aired Bryan took to social media to make this announcement:

Congratulations to Camilo Pardo! It was an honor to compete alongside Camilo on#MotorCityMasters, and I had a blast.

We decided to share the prize, with the first place winner keeping the $100,000, and giving the Camaro to the runner up.

This means the world to me because it means I can create, and fund, the design scholarship that I was competing for.

Without further ado, I’m proud to announce the primary reason I decided to compete on this show: to fund The Bryan Thompson Design Scholarship, created to reward exceptional talent in Automotive Design.

Thompson went on to say that the new scholarship fund will reward talented design students by helping pay for eduction at College for Creative Studies or Art Center College of Design.
